Soft and chewy bottom, gooey, jammy center and crispy crumble topping make these Strawberry Streusel Bars perfect. Plus, they’re easy to make!
STRAWBERRY STREUSEL BARS
If you’re splurging on dessert, shouldn’t it be on everything you love most about desserts, the crust and streusel topping? I promise that’s why I’ve developed all my cobbler recipes that don’t have fruit in them.😏 Every layer is the best. They are deliciously crisp and buttery.
These strawberry bars aren’t overly sweet. They are sturdy which makes them great for lunch boxes. As well, my boys love to grab and go this easy dessert bar.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED TO MAKE THESE
First, you’ll need an 8×8-inch baking pan to bake them in. You can use a 9×9-inch pan but they’ll be thinner and cook faster. As well, you’ll need a mixing bowl, electric mixer, spatula, and spoon. I prefer a stand mixer.
Of course, you’ll need measuring tools. You will use measuring cups and measuring spoons for this recipe.
